Opening Weekend of the RG Express Holiday Railroad

  • Overview

    Join us for the opening weekend of the RG Express holiday railroad.

    There is a brand new scaled building this year! It is the Butterfly Wing from Reiman Gardens!

    Trains have come to the Gardens from November 23 through January 4! Visitors young and old will be enchanted by this custom-built garden-scale train. This unbelievably detailed “g-scale” (often called “garden scale”) display was created by Applied Imagination, an internationally recognized company whose train displays meld botanical design and architecture. Walk past, around, and under miniature buildings and bridges historically significant to Iowa State University and local history, rendered with clever use of natural materials and accented with a spectacular waterfall.

    No preregistration required. Free for members and ISU students. Price of admission for the general public.
